for "shepard smith reporting" reporting live wednesday afternoon. the markets have reacted very favorably today and a live look at the dow shows us the industrial average has soared. i'm sheppard smith in kiev. "your world with neil cavuto" starts now. >> thank you. today a guy that stood up to vladimir putin and knows the threat the ukraine is facing first hand. at one point running from what his bodyguards thought was an imminent russian attack the former georgian president said putin is looking for a hot war and there may be no way to stop him. we'll be live from kiev moments from now. meanwhile, this was the scene in ukraine today. shots fired as ukrainian troops said russian forces came face to
1:01pm
face outside a military base in crimea making for some very tense and frightening moments. and in russia test fired an intercontinental ballistic missile, you get the picture, two russian warships steaming into the black sea. and you think we've got a sea of trouble for stocks, but not so fast. welcome, everybody. this is the calm in between the storms. i'm neil cavuto, and take a look at this the dow soaring more than 200 points bouncing back from yesterday's steep losses. confidence building up here that things will eventually die down over there. to fox business network keeping track of it all. >> hey, neil, down now for sure but what was down yesterday is up today. stocks soaring across the board. best day of the year. so, what's this headline-driven and highly reactionary market is showing us a little volatility is good and markets around the world are interconnected. one coughs and the other catches cold. the armed russian invasion of
1:02pm
ukraine overshadowed better-than-economic reports in the u.s. the dow and s&p had their worst days in months and scared investors pushed gold and bond prices higher. all of that unwinding right now. at the closing bell the dow ending with gains of 227 points. the nasdaq touching fresh 14-year highs. and the widely held s&p also hitting all-time highs today. this rising tide lifts all boats. it's not just the broader markets. the russell 2000 hit historic highs and the market is following every single headline out of russia and russia's defense minister ordered soldiers back to their bases. russia's president said he did not see any immediate need to send troops further into ukraine. and stocks are celebrating. what a difference a day makes. yesterday in europe, turning into gains of 2 1/2 percent in
1:03pm
france and germany today. and asia handed in a mostly positive performance. and as threats of sanctions on russia eased back, so do u.s. oil prices falling back a dollar 60. russia is one of the biggest energy producers especially for the rest of europe. and it's home for big tech names the stocks of yandex and kiwi are soaring. fear is off right now. risk is back on. but the situation is very fluid. and the beggar concern on wall street could very well be not russia but the jobs report for february. that's due out on friday, neil. >> and that's going to be one that's going to be closely monitored, lauren, thank you very much. to washington. forget about the debt the president officially unveiling his budget calling for billions more in spending and it comes after one top democrat said we really can forget about cutting anything. >> there is absolutely no way we're going to cut spending. we're not going to cut education. you know, and we're not going to repeal the affordable care act.
1:04pm
let that be known. it's not happening. >> all right. so, cutting spending is not happening. watching where all this is going down, michael? >> the budget blueprint has taken a lot of heat because it's seen as not making the tough choices about the major drivers of our debt. it's a $3.9 trillion plan laying out the president's priorities. it includes spending $302 billion on highways and railroads and mass transit. it provides more money for job training and preschool and it expands tax credits for an estimated 13.5 million low-income workers and it increases taxes more than $650 billion on higher-income americans and it adds $56 billion in fees for big banks. there are also tax increases for tobacco products and airline passengers. the president's plan in print form arrived up on capitol hill this morning -- this morning. congress prefers to do the budgeting itself, so it's not like whatever the president sent would be accepted but it can be
1:05pm
seen as a starting point in the debate over the nation's spending priorities, yet rather than a lot of new ideas in these budget books, critics suggest it's more of the same. the republicans say the president's 2015 budget spends, borrows, and taxes too much, neil? >> michael, thank you. it is ironic right now that all of this is going down on fat tuesday, good reason to party in new orleans, maybe, but minnesota republican congresswoman michele bachmann says no reason to celebrate in washington, so congressman, the bottom line is the president has proposed a budget that breaks his grand bargain with republicans and particularly with speaker boehner. that's not good. >> no, it's not good. and i think what the president has done is he's given the perfect example to the american people why we need to have a republican senate and a republican house and why the republican house has been so effective in trying to put the brakes on to whatever extent they can for the out-of-control obama budget -- >> i know you say that
1:06pm
congressman, but the last time republicans had the run of the show, you were hardly great fiscal stewards, so convince the american people it would be different this time. >> i will. the worst budget deficit under george bush happened in his last term in office. that's when nancy pelosi was speaker of the house. budget ra $450 billion. president obama blew through those deficits. he had in excess of trillion dollar deficits year after year. what the republicans were able to do in the house is not continue that level of trajectory. has spending gone up? it absolutely has. but the level has slowed down and -- >> i get the feeling, congresswoman, maybe not you in particular, a lot of your party are giving up the fight and keeping the powder dry and hoping at the end of the year pick up more seats in the house and maybe take the senate and you bet you that will be the time when republicans get serious. but is that a lot to hang your
1:07pm
hat on? >> well, what we need to hang our hat on is boosting the labor force participation rate. we're at the lowest level ever for anyone over age 16 actually having a job in the labor force and in a full-time capacity. that has to change. and unfortunately the president's budget is not a serious budget. it never balances. it doesn't send a signal to the marketplace, neil, that any time soon we're going to change -- see a change in washington's ways. >> then what do you think of what paul ryan did, where they found this sort of bipartisan way to address budget issues longer term, do you think that did anything better? because many conservatives in your own party say it barely moved the needle. >> it did barely move the needle. in actuality they came to an agreement, they moved to the next step. i voted against that agreement because i agree with mitch daniels, former governor of
1:08pm
dwn indiana who said our economy is like a car going 80,000 miles into a brick wall when it comes to debt. president obama ensures that the united states government takes on debt that it can't handle so much so that we're looking at a quadrupling of interest rates under this particular budget. we can't do that. it's not going to put us in a pro-growth mode. even academic literature lets us know this is not a pro-growth budget. that's what we need. everyone in the private sector knows we need a pro-growth economy. president obama's budget doesn't get us there. >> i was looking at his budget pretty closely. it's got over the years a trillion dollars worth of tax hikes, very little to sustain cuts? spending. but the tax hikes he think will be able to shave the deficits as a percentage of gdp going forward. he's hanging it on tax hikes and taxing the rich. what do you think? >> he's happeninging on his idea
1:09pm
of income inequality that he was dealing with in his state of the union address. another way to say income inequality is redistribution of wealth. that's essentially what the president is proposing in this budget, redistribution of wealth again from production in the united states to dependency. and so dependency grows under this budget. productivity unfortunately doesn't. >> all right. but i guess i'm looking at the same big old numbers you are and i don't get whether you are republican or democrat, you have to see it a nearly $4 trillion budget. there must be something that you can cut, but barbara boxer didn't find any such thing. this is from barbara boxer. why don't you listen. >> there's absolutely no way we're going to cut spending. we're not going to cut education, you know, and we're not going to repeal the affordable care act. let that be known. it's not happening. >> it's not happening. what do you think of that? >> which, again, makes my case, why we have to have republican-controlled senate and
1:10pm
a republican-controlled house. we had the opportunity months from now this november. we have to make sure that barbara boxer's claim doesn't come true. because the american people -- apparently the president isn't hearing what i'm hearing from the american people, which is government, get your house in order, stop spending money that we don't have, stop increasing my taxes. i'm taxed enough already. that's very common sense, it's also the path to prosperity for the united states. it will grow jobs where we need them the most. >> congresswoman, great having you on again. thank you very, very much. michele bachmann. we the former georgian president running for cover then. why he's telling the west prepare for the worst right now. he is live.
1:11pm
predicting the future is a pretty difficult thing to do. but, manufacturing in the united states means advanced technology.
1:12pm
we learned that technology allows us to be craft oriented. no one's losing their job. there's no beer robot that has suddenly chased them out. the technology is actually creating new jobs. siemens designed and built the right tools and resources to get the job done. as a police officer, i've helped many people in the last 23 years, but i needed help in quitting smoking. [ male announcer ] along with support, chantix varenline is pron to help peop quit smoking. chantix reduced the urge for me to smoke. it actually caught me by surprise. [ male announcer ] some people had changes in behavior, thinking, or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood, and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after opping chantix. ifou notice any of these, stop chaix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of mental-health problems, which could get worse whe taking chantix. don't ke chantix if youe d a serious allergi or skin reaction to it.
1:13pm
if you develop these, stop chantix and see your doctor right away, as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you ha a history of heart or blood-vessel proble or if you develop new worse symptoms. get medicalelp right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. use caution when driving or operating machinery. comm side effects include nausea, trouble sleeping, and unusual dreams. i did not know what it was like to be a nonsmoker, but i do now. [ male announcer ] ask your doctor if chantix is right for you. but i do now. anbe a name and not a number?tor scotade. ron: i'm never alone with scottrade. i can always call or stop by my local office. they're nearby and ready to help. so when i have questions, i can talk to someone who knows exactly how i trade. because i don't trade like everybody. i trade like me. that's why i'm with scottrade. announcer: ranked highest in investor satisfaction with self-directed services by j.d. power and associates.
1:14pm
well, another way the health care cancellations set to come before the elections, and we've got another major obamacare delay. what's going on here? >> hey, neil, what the house is saying in the next week or so are going to announce a previous, quote-unquote, fix to obamacare where they're not going to enforce the mandates in terms of what has to be in plans for them to no longer be substandard under the rules of obamacare, it's their way to sort of patch back together for some people the if you like your plan, you can keep it promise that the president made and, of course, broke in what has been determined to be the 2013 lie of the year. >> well, what's going to happen, though, is that this would not be a nasty reminder that hits you come election time which is -- is fine by democrats, right? because the last thing you want to do is be reminded of how much
1:15pm
people are hating this thing so far. >> well, look, this is obviously political. it is transparently and sinnically political, no one is seriously arguing otherwise. but there's two things to remember when you are looking at this delay that's going to happen or an extension of a previous delay. first is, for millions of americans they're not going to be eligible for it. for millions of americans the dye has already been cast. they either received cancellation letters last fall or they're going to get them this fall. that's not going to change. but for those who might take advantage of this, quote-unquote, fix, it's important to remember that this is not a restoration of the president's promise, this is merely extending the stay of execution until safely after the november election. i mean, it's so very clear what the democrats are trying to do here. i don't suspect it's going to work for them, though. >> you know, i wonder what a lot of companies do in the meantime, guy, because they're not slaves
1:16pm
of any political calendar here, they're just going to tell their workers and a lot of them, you know, the accountant guys who are neither left nor right are just in to make money or save money, they're going to telegraph to workers what you've gotten used to is going to change, you might pay more, you might pay less or you won't have it at all. for millions of people things are going to change, and i don't know about you, but a lot of folks don't like change especially when it stands to reason they'll pay more for it. >> especially when they were told nothing would change, right? they weren't told hey, you know, you're going to be completely fine and maybe you'll pay a little bit more and maybe your plan might get tweaked a bit. they were told unequivocally you can keep your exact plan and doctor that you like and on top of that your premiums will go down. and that's just simply not true for tens of millions of americans. something you brought up, the word uncertainty, is so crucial
1:17pm
in this debate. moody's the credit rating agency just a few weeks ago downgraded the outlook for health insurance companies citing uncertainty. these companies don't know what's coming at them next. this is sort of on-the-fly changes being made by the president to suit his momentary and his party's momentary fleeting political needs. and these companies are not quite sure what's around the bend. what's that going to result in? premium increases, that's one of the direct results of all of this uncertainty and the destabilization that playing politics is doing and exacting that cost on the health care industry and americans and consumers as a result. >> all right, guy vincent, thank you very much. good seeing you again. >> my pleasure, neil. he's been there and done that. live from kiev, the former president of georgia on how to put putin in his place as ukraine right now is anything but a peaceful place. >> fine, fine, fine.
1:18pm
>> fine. [ male annncer ] with y 7 million investors... oh hey, neill, how are you? [ male announcer ...you'd expect us to have a highly skilled call center. kevin, neill holley's on line one. ok, great. [ male announcer ] and we do. it's how edward jones makes sense of investing.

1:20pm
1:21pm
remember when the then president of georgia found himself in a very tense situation while battling the russians. now, mikheil saakashvili is in the kiev helping the new ukrainian government deal with this latest threat. i should tell you, want to remind you all that we are dealing with a significant sound delay here, so my apology to those of you trying to keep up at home and to the president. mr. president, very good to have you. i want to talk about what you tell those ukrainians you meet, how do you guide them?
1:22pm
>> very good to be back to your show. well, i certainly advise them to exercise maximum degree of self-restraint but also to get ready for the worst because vladimir putin certainly is going to -- not going to stop. he has planned for full grak b crimea and he needs to expel the military bases there, the ukrainian military base they were confronting much more -- exceeding russian force but they still were very brave to trying to defend their own country. but so far it has not been -- you know, it's not been a shootout but it was very close to that. so, it's a very precarious situation. one thing should be remembered that russia has very clear plan to stay in crimea because beyond everything crimea has lots of shale gas and shale gas what ukraine's main hope for energy independence and for economic independence as well as will allow russia's vladimir putin
1:23pm
ultimate nightmare because if ukraine has really done the shale gas as they were planning two years from now together with the american company, then vladimir putin would have lost the biggest cash buyer in europe, so he has all the reasons why he's there. he has to extend his -- his stay inside russia as the president. he needs to grab this gas and kill europe's alternative sources of energy and he certainly is going to -- his game is to keep the rest of ukraine under chaos and to keep a foothold at the control of this territory for good. if he's allowed to get away with that. >> mr. president, how far do you think he'll push it? on paper he has lost a lot of money, as have a lot of russian oligarchs when the russian market tumbled with energy and oil and a lot of natural gas concerns that have tumbled on concerns of their stability. maybe for his own financial self-preservation he's going to want to cool it.
1:24pm
do you think that more than sanctions will tame him? >> well, he actually said -- his people said continuously russian television they said remember last time over georgia we also lost big part of our money? but we got it back. so, it will go away. and i think his tactic is very clear. i mean, grab the territory. then allow the west some kind of face saving to get -- allow to just leave the situation, switch their attention to some other situation somewhere else in the world and lay down for a while and extend his own political existence inside russia because this kind of situation is a political life and go for another land grab. it will be the never-ending story of this civilization unless something is permanently done now. it's not about only just markets. markets are reacting to whether the west is really serious about taming this guy. taming means there are lots of
1:25pm
dissensions, last time i was in florida it's full of kids of russian oligarchs and oligarchs themselves. there are mansions and lots of russian government officials who have bought mansions and houses and houses and a lot of property there. most of their money is in the u.s. and the european banks. i would say more than 90%. putin himself is the richest corrupt guy in the world. and it's well known, it's well known for irs people in the u.s. but it's also very well documented by russian anti-corruption crusaders, so there's so many leverages that the u.s. if it decided can employ to tame him. and one thing should be remembered, president obama said he will have to pay costs for it. now, if -- and this was something the right to say. but the point is that it was also said after the war in georgia that you have to carry costs and he didn't really have any serious costs. so, it doesn't cost him now. it will cost the united states. this will have wide
1:26pm
repercussions all over the situations all situations in syria ranging from ranging fromf the united states. it's really not going to go away. right now exactly like, you know, second world war, nazi germany grabbed part of czechoslovakia because it was inhabited by germans, ethnic germans, under the pretext of en some westerners said s and far-away land of which you have heard very little, this was chamberlin, prime minister of uk, some positions in the west say, well, we don't really have interests. we need to think about it. well, the problem is that as we know, the things didn't stop back there in previous centuries and it escalated to the second world war. i'm not thinking this will escalate to a world war, however, it will escalate into a serious grave problem for
1:27pm
europe. it's really the u.s. interests. because the u.s. has benefitted from the post-second world war order, post-cold war order in europe and the u.s. has everything to lose with collapse of that order. and this thing in ukraine is going to lead to collapse of the order of which all the principle beneficiary of which is the united states of america. >> he told a russian reporter not too long ago that i have about a backbone, that i stand for something, and he waved his hand in what seemed to be a dismissive view of the west and maybe by extension of president obama. does he think the west is just too weak, too vacillating to respond so he's going to do anything and everything he wants? >> look, the guy today at the press conference, he basically almost made fun of the whole world because he was looking at the cameras and like so outright shameless, oh, these are not my
1:28pm
troops. some people purchased military uniform and some equipment you can get anywhere. they look russian troops, they behave russian troops but these are not russian troops. these are maybe extraterrestrial's pretend or masquerading to be russian troops. it's very clear that the guy can lie like this in the 21st century is danger, is danger. in the last time i met him in the run-up to the war, well, your friends in the west promise you nice things but they don't deliver. i certainly don't promise you nice things and i do deliver. he doesn't want to be liked. kazakhstan which is usually very royal to russia made statement against russian moves. everybody's panicking around here but he doesn't want to be liked by his neighbors. he wants to be feared by his neighbors. he thinks fear brings real respect, not love. he thinks westerners try to lure russia into some kind of love trap and the slippage of its traditional properties, so his idea of the world the more they
1:29pm
fear him, more dangerous he appears, more, you know, more spooky kind of policy he implements, more he'll be respected also by the united states. that's the fundamental problem there. >> wow, mr. president, that is very powerful, to be fear. fear me, don't like me. fear me. we'll have more after this. there's this kid. coach calls her a team player. she's kind of special. she makes the whole team better. he's the kind of player that puts the puck, horsehide, bullet. right where it needs to be. coach calls it logistics. he's a great passer. dependable. a winning team has to have one. somebody you can count on. somebody like my dad. this is my dad. somebody like my mom. my grandfather. i'm very pround of him. her. them.
1:30pm
1:31pm
1:32pm
all right. well, let the midterms begin. texas holding the first primaries of the season today,
1:33pm
and if the new poll is right democrats could be in some trouble especially when it comes to the senate, because look at this, 50% of voters are leaning republican, 42% are leaning democrat. in the house a virtual tie, 46 leading republican, 46% democrat. david drucker on how all this plays out. is there any way you can extrapolate this early in the game what this could portend, what do you think? >> i think it's difficult to say what today's elections mean for november 5th, but i think we can look at a couple of trends so far. one is that the tea party has had a hard time recruiting real top tier candidates the way the conservati conservative movement was able to do in 2010 when they put together rock stars, so they are going after establishment players like john cornyn and mitch mcconnell and pat roberts but most don't have what it takes to really cause the party problems or at least upending
1:34pm
incumbents on election day. the other thing we could look at that could tell us something, however, is a special house primary down in florida. i don't like to put too much influence, too much weight on these house primaries because they don't always tell you what's really going to happen a few months later when you have the general, but this race is being fought in part over the affordable care act with the democratic candidate defending the principles behind what the law is supposed to do to help people and the republican attacking it and depending on how close this is in a democratic-leaning district even though i still think the democratic candidate wins, it could give you an idea of the political strength for using attacks on obamacare to make gains if you're a republican. and so those are some of what we can look at. but i still think we need to get through the primary season, see what the playing field looks like as we hit the summer in terms of the president's approval ratings and what people think of the health care law at that point. >> you know, having talked to a lot of the president's people,
1:35pm
david, to a man or woman, a lot of them say give this thing time, if you give this thing time, things will stabilize. the negative numbers you are seeing will be reversed when we see more people enrolling without any glitches or problems and some of the snapshots you're seeing today will look like that just a snapshot. that's what they are hanging their hats on. republicans just the opposite, this thing is going to go from bad to worse, and more people paying higher premiums will be worse and that will weigh on voters' minds come november. which way is it leaning right now? >> i think right now it's leaning in the favor of the republicans and i'll tell you why. 2010 was about fear what the health care law might be. 2012 was a repeat of that and it didn't quite work out because voters had worked out their angst about the law in 2010. but 2014 the first implementation election and there's simply not enough right about the law yet to really have an effect for democrats on the midterms. i think there are too -- there's
1:36pm
too much uncertainty, there are too many bad stories out there and now people are reacting to their actual experience with the law which right now isn't good enough. and democrats would really have to turn this thing around i think by the beginning of the summer for poll numbers to stabilize and things to reverse themselves. so, right now although there's more to this election than the health care law if you are a republican and you've got to take a look at the economy and offer voters a proactive agenda, the health care law is working for you and i think in a big way. >> that's what they are hanging their proverbial hat on. david drucker, thank you very much. toronto's mayor is getting knocked on late night tv for knocking people over, but we're noticing something he's knocking out of the park. the president might want to notice, too. ♪
1:37pm
geico motorcycle. see how much you could save.
1:38pm
1:39pm
iwe don't back down. we only know one direction: up so we're up early. up late. thinking up game-changing ideas, like this: dozens of tax free zones across new york state. move here. expand here. or start a new business here... and pay no taxes for 10 years. with new jobs, new opportunities and a new tax free plan. there's only one way for your business to go. up. find out if your business can qualify at start-upny.com do any of you remember this? >> yes, i have smoked crack
1:40pm
cocaine, but -- do i? am i an addict? no. have i tried it? probably in one of my drunken stupors. >> and that's about it. well, now toronto's infamous mayor rob ford is taking his act to "jimmy kimmel live." >> why are you here? what good could come of this? have you ever seen the show? >> this is the football video. >> why is he running at you? is he tackling you? because this video ends right now. >> i'm not quite sure what he's doing. >> is he running? >> he's attacked somebody. >> that lady you apologized to her afterwards. is it -- once you get up to a certain speed there's no stopping or -- >> i wasn't elected to be perfect, jimmy, i was elected to clean up the mess that i inherited and that's exactly what i've done. >> the mess he's talking about is toronto's economy and even his critics say it is coming
1:41pm
back, so maybe that's why his poll numbers are holding steady. something that gene mark said that president obama might learn a thing or two from. but your reality, i mean, you look at it as we look at him is quaint and unusual. >> right. >> in toronto how's he regarded? >> well, you know, toronto -- torontoni torontonians, they view him as entertaining. the old adage elizabeth taylor once said, you know, money is the best deodorant, neil. obviously elizabeth taylor has never hung out with me after a softball game. >> probably not surprising. >> when there is -- when the economy is going well, when things are okay, the voting populace will put up with the leader that is in choice to a certain degree. >> he came in -- timing is everything, but toronto was in a world of hurt. a lot of things that business guys, taxes, tried to streamline things and make it easy, open up businesses and move businesses to toronto and that's what is kind of helping him through this. >> helping him.
1:42pm
but it's funny, it's not as if toronto is booming. they've been growing about 2.6%, 2.8% this year which is ahead of the national average of canada but still behind some of the canadian cities. >> right. >> on top of that their unemployment rate is over 8% and projected to go down a little bit. you would think with those kind of numbers that people would be a little bit more fed up, but apparently, though, in that area, the entertainment value has something to say for it. >> but, you know, i always wonder there's a lot that helps politicians who are likable. >> yeah. >> and i know that's an intangible quality. >> right. >> but you assign it to certain people who for some reason that you can't quite put your fing on it. you either like them, find them funny, engaging, different, that's im. >> it is. he's a funny guy. but, you know, there's something else besides just being likable and that's having at least the perception of being economy, right? so, if the improving and if the government continues to run and if he's showing the good faith. again, if the average person does not have anything to
1:43pm
complain about -- >> but toronto doubled its unemployment or if everything was hitting the fan, he would be in trouble. >> i tell the story my wife has a friend who goes to a dermatologist who she absolutely can't stand charges high fees and isn't a very nice person, doesn't like to see her, but the dermatologist is very, very competent and she pays the extra fee and she goes because that person actually delivers. it's really the same thing with him. he is an entertainer, but he's getting his job done. he's providing a little bit of humor, but he has to watch himself because there's a line he's going to cross. >> bill clinton got through a lot of stuff because -- i remember this, wall street guys who didn't like him personally, but, boy, they liked the economic boom he was bringing and they didn't want him to resign or impeached. they liked the green and he's bringing us a lot of green. >> i remember the days that clinton was president, boy, the things he was getting away with then, the republicans didn't like him, but the general population, very favorable ratings. what happened to clinton?

it was a good economy. relatively safe world. we had no things really to complain about, so we gave him a wide error of margin. >> this is not your way of saying become buffoonish in public, but it doesn't hurt to be liked. >> i'm not sure the president right now has the same kind of latitude. >> it would be funny if during the state of the union address he smashed somebody on his way out. it's always good to see you, gene. meanwhile, you better watch your kid and what he's posting on facebook. one child just cost her dad $80,000. i am so coming home to you right -- the conversation about his car loan didn't start here. it started with that overdue bill he never got. checking his experian credit report and score allowed him to identify and better address the issue. then drive off into the sunset. experian.

how did facebook get one post with an $80,000 price tag?
1:48pm
just ask patrick snay he wonnage age discrimination case against his former employer in miami but then his daughter went bragging to her facebook friends, momma and papa won the case against gulliver, gulliver is now officially paying for my vacation to europe this summer, suck it. that changes everything and now the dad has to suck it up losing out on an $80,000 settlement for failing to keep it under wraps. is that fair? is it fair, michelle disagrees. why do you disagree, michelle? >> first of all, initially the court actually sided with him. this was an appeal. >> we have a very limited time in a leave. just deal with that. >> i think what happens is that the court initially was, like, this was an agreement between he and the school. >> right. >> and wasn't necessarily with her, so she said something, then she's not violating the agreement because she wasn't a
1:49pm
party to the agreement so there's the legal end of it. >> so, she's exonerated. he's exonerated. >> that's probably what the court said, the lower court. but the appellate court was, like, excuse me, the point of the entire thing is to keep everybody quiet. >> keep it under wraps. >> did not keep it under wraps she's under his control and he blew it. >> he totally blew it, settlements for lawsuits, there's basically two important terms for a settlement agreement, how much money and whether or not it's confidential. and in a situation where you have both of those terms, one person breaches their side, it invalidates the entire -- >> it doesn't matter who does it on the other side. >> not that it doesn't matter -- actually in this case it might because the fact that anyone would know about the terms on its own means that someone violated it. >> how old is she? >> i think she's still school age. >> he shouldn't have told her. >> it because she did it on facebook? >> yes. >> if he told her, it would have
1:50pm
probably been okay -- >> but facebook is a big megaphone. >> the thing is that if the terms were it had to be kept confidential, chances are it needed to be kept confidential from anyone but the fact that she posted it is proof, it is hard evidence that, in fact, the confidentiality term was not honored. >> not only posted but to say, you know, having a great old time -- >> we're going to europe, suck it. >> yeah, yeah. >> but there was one thing, though, it's a weak argument but i'm a lawyer and i got to find those things. >> really? >> yeah. here's the one thing. when the school react ed the wa that they did, we're going back to court to get it, i kind of felt they revealed itself. had they said, what settlement, we don't know what you're talking about. they might have preserved it not been embarrassed, but everything is out of the bag they're actually hurting themselves. >> or any future legal dealings. >> probably not the smartest move, i agree with michelle it's probably the not smartest move on the part of the school, but the 80 grand means much more to these people. now the school is feeling

side of this with russia saying maybe it could deal without doing business with the united states if this all escalates further. and neil, i was in davos in january, and i don't get the sense that the russians would like to be further economically isolated than they already are. there's talk of some of the western countries boycotting the g-8 summit that putin is holding in sochi in june. he said today that's fine if they don't want to show up, he'll hold it anyway. this is the war of words escalating today, and then neil, of course, the big story we have been talking about for days now is the fact that russia has operational control over crimea, and so far, we've got russian armies and the ukrainian army facing off, but it's been fairly calm because both sides have exercised discipline to this point. today, though, it got a little close with ukrainian officers trying to get back on one of their barracks and the russians warned them to stand back and fired warning shots into the air. president putin today outside moscow at his home, had a bunch

of journalists in, spoke for the first time ability all of this since the conflict really escalated here in ukraine. he said a lot of things that i think were interesting. he accused the west of reckle recklessly fomenting the troubles in ukraine and said he's not going to use force unless terror prevails. >> amy, thank you very, very much. i want you all to take a peek at this. >> but it is difficult to settle or even discuss these problems in an atmosphere of intimidation. that is why this latest soviet threat or any other threat which is madeconnect 1200
